Vaginal Exercise Cones for Stress Urinary Continence

Strengthen your Pelvic Floor with Vaginal Weights

When you hit the gym to do weights it’s unlikely that your regimen includes strengthening your vagina, but if you suffer from stress urinary incontinence, maybe weights are what’s needed.  LadySystem is a vaginal cone product that comes with 5 different weights developed to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles.  To use the system, you select a cone and insert it like a tampon.  When you’ve found a weight that requires a little effort to hold in place, you begin your training.

According to the LadySystem website, women spend an average of $44 per month managing stress incontinence without resolving the issue.  Their system aims to ‘re-educate’ your pelvic floor so that it reliably goes into action to prevent stress urinary incontinence leaks.  Their goal is that the system will help rapidly strengthen the pelvic floor, on average within 6 weeks to 3 months.

Have you tried LadySystem?  Let us know how it works for you!
